Top 5 Gallop CliftonStrengths

Command in Action

People with strong Command talents naturally take charge. They see what needs to be done and are willing to speak up. Confrontation does not frighten them; rather, they understand that it is the first step toward resolution. They need things to be clear among people, and they will challenge others to be realistic and honest. Their talent pushes them to take risks. At times, those with strong Command talents may intimidate others. And while some may resent this talent, others often willingly hand them the reins. People are drawn toward those who take a stand and are willing to lead.

Futuristic in Action

People with strong Futuristic talents love to peer over the horizon. They are fascinated by the future. They anticipate and imagine in detail what tomorrow could or should be. They usually see the future positively. While the details of the picture will depend on their other strengths and interests — a better product, a better team, a better life or a better world — it will always inspire them. This vision energizes themselves and others. They can paint a picture of the future for their team members.

Relator in Action

Relator talents describe a person’s attitude toward their relationships. People with strong Relator talents are drawn to others they already know. They do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people — in fact, they may have other themes that cause them to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends — but they do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around their close friends. A person with strong Relator talents forms close relationships with people.

Strategic in Action

People with strong Strategic talents can sort through the clutter to find the best route. You can’t teach this skill. It is a distinct way of thinking — a unique perspective on the world at large. This outlook allows them to see patterns where others see complexity. Mindful of these patterns, they envision alternative scenarios, always asking, “What if this happened?” This recurring question helps them see, plan and prepare for future situations. They see a way when others assume there is no way. Armed with this strategy, they move forward.

Significance in Action

People with strong Significance talents want others to see their worth. They want people to recognize, hear and value them. Particularly, they want others to know and appreciate them for their unique strengths. They want people to view their contributions as substantial, powerful and significant. Their intense yearning for others to recognize them motivates them away from the mediocre and toward the exceptional.
